Huawei has launched the FreeBuds Studio headphones alongside its new Mate 40-series. The new FreeBuds Studio is over-ear wireless headphones with Active Noise Cancellation (ANC), up to 24 hours of music playback, and voice assistant support.
Huawei FreeBuds Studio headphones feature an omnidirectional 8-microphone system and have a 40mm dynamic driver and a frequency response between the range of 4Hz to 48 kHz. It uses 6 mics for calls and has up to 24 hours of battery life. The ANC adjusts automatically according to different environments that can cancel up to 40dB. Huawei claims the headphones have a 4-layer diaphragm driver that can support wide frequency.
There are three noise cancellation modes – Ultra, Cozy, and General. There is an Awareness mode as well so that users can still hear what’s going on around them. Also, Voice mode reduces environmental noise for improved call quality.
The wireless headphones are also equipped with dual antennas for 360-degree Bluetooth coverage. The Huawei FreeBuds Studio gets its power from a 410mAh battery that charges via USB Type-C. It can run up to 8 hours with just 10 minutes for charging with ANC disabled. Huawei FreeBuds Studio supports dual-mode and dual connection for users to connect with two devices simultaneously. It also has Bluetooth 5.2, wear detection, IMU sensors, and a pop-up pair feature that works with Huawei phones running on EMUI 10.1.
The price of the Huawei Studio headphones is €299 (roughly $353). It will be available starting November in Graphite Black and Blush Gold color options.
